Miami Heat guard Terry Rozier III is facing an uncertain timeline for recovery as he deals with a neck injury, marking him as week-to-week. Rozier's absence has been noticeable, as he missed the final four games of the regular season and both of Miami's Play-In Tournament matchups. Despite the setback, there's relief that the injury is not considered career-threatening.

With Rozier sidelined, the Heat will need to redistribute offensive responsibilities, likely relying more heavily on Tyler Herro. Other players such as Delon Wright, Patty Mills, Duncan Robinson, Caleb Martin, and Jaime Jaquez may also see increased opportunities.

Rozier's injury comes at a critical time for the Heat, especially with star Jimmy Butler also dealing with a knee issue. The team's success in the playoffs could dictate Rozier's return timeline.

Rozier's arrival in Miami came in a trade with the Charlotte Hornets, with Kyle Lowry heading in the opposite direction. In his stint with the Heat, Rozier showcased his skills, averaging 16.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.6 assists in 31 games.


Despite challenges, the Heat clinched the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference after a victory against the Chicago Bulls. Their playoff journey begins against the Boston Celtics, with their series opener scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
